I am loving all the colour around this year. Not only for my wardrobe, but also for my house.
This zig-zag cushion was made from 98 triangles, so there's a few hours of my life that I will never get back! The blue is a denim (from shorts I haven't even made yet), the peppermint is a linen bought specifically for the cushions and the white is a twill leftover from the white pants I made last year. It is my favourite of the cushions.
I have also repainted and recovered 4 directors chairs. The fabric was hideously expensive, but is supposedly more mould resistant than other fabrics I have tried and I have seen it used with good results at one of my sister's houses. I could have bought it in a 45 cm width and then all the chairs would have had matching stripes, but it was more economical to buy the 150 cm wide fabric, and I can live with non-matching stripes and I even have fabric leftover to make cushions for the outdoor couch.
I have also chosen peppermint colours for my next house-y project. I am going to reupholster the cushions in these chairs that were part of my grandmother's dining setting, given to me by my sister when I moved house. This time round I am going to cover the cushions with oilcloth. It does feel a little tacky to sit on, but the combination of young children and the tropics makes it a practical and cheap choice. I have 6 chairs. I have not yet decided whether to cover all the cushions in the same fabric or go for some mix and match fabrics.
